Oz Lotto Games
A standard game is made up of 7 numbers. Each standard game gives you one chance of winning a prize. Game numbers can be chosen manually or at random using QuickPick.
A system allows you to play more numbers than a standard entry providing you with an entry covering every combination of the numbers you have chosen. This type of entry allows players to increase their chances of winning a prize by playing a wider range of number combinations.
Syndicates give you more chances to win by covering a greater combination of numbers and sharing the cost between the members of a group. Playing more games increases the chance of winning a prize. If the syndicate ticket wins a prize the total prize will be divided equally among all of the members of the syndicate.
